Flight of Dreams

by Ariel Lawhon

This is my favorite book of the year, so far.  Lawhon uses the known facts of the tragedy of the Hindenburg and then tells a plausible story of what may have happened during the flight across the Atlantic.  I was kept guessing who the person was that didn't want to see the Hindenburg return to Germany.

I had always thought, probably because I was once told, that the demise of the Hindenburg was due to an electrical charge between the landing pole and the dirigible, but Lawhon offers another possibility.

My recommendation:  Read this book if you get a chance.  I want to see this one made into a movie.
